La Fabbrica’s tiles frame sumptuous opera costumes

La Fabbrica’s tiles frame sumptuous opera costumes

June 2017

In April, La Fabbrica-AVA featured at Milan Design Week in a new edition of Fuorisalone. At the Ponte Rosso Art Gallery in the Brera district, porcelain tiles from La Fabbrica served as frames for the sumptuous gowns worn by the sopranos in an opera interpreted by Andrea Bocelli for the Teatro del Silenzio in his home town of Lajatico.  The costumes, made by Waste Recycling, celebrate the concept of recycling, using scraps and remnants left over from the tailoring of haute couture garments in the fashion district of Florence.

For the Fuorisalone, the duet of sophisticated gowns are displayed together with the sophisticated surface finishes of La Fabbrica if on a real fashion runway.  The originality of the costumes is set off by AVA’s Extraordinary Size mega format tiles up to 1,600 by 3,200mm with finishes inspired by the timeless beauty of marble and stone, on this occasion mixed in nuances co-ordinated with the fabrics.
